Nothing in this world is constant, each and every one changes, even the love and feeling you have for your partner. Other couples think that when the honeymoon stage is over, the love is over and the relationship is doomed to end. Nothing can be further from the truth. The feeling on enthusiasm and excitement on the relationship may be gone, but a deeper, more comfortable love replaces it. A love that is more secure and stable.
Other couples would think that this would be boring, but the fact is, this is the phase of the relationship where you can work together in inspiring each other for success. Since the honeymoon stage is over, you are through impressing each other, and become more focused on how to make your goals a reality. When you are in this stage, you need to update each other because your partner may not get what is going on, you partner might be confused why you don’t bring flowers and chocolates anymore, and you don’t go out on dates as much anymore. This is where updating comes in. You need to update your partner that it is time to save for a house, a car, a baby, etc. The upgrading, is when you and your partner finds a compromise on how to keep a little piece of the honeymoon stage to the phase of collaboration.
You could compromise to have dates but not as expensive as you used to. To keep marriage beautiful is all about communication and consideration.
